Hello, Ram Fam,
I hope you are having a GREAT holiday weekend!
VA Return for Second Semester: Virtual Academy students who wish to return to in-person instruction for the Spring semester should have a parent/guardian email Ms. Nilles (email@example.com) by Dec. 3 to ensure a smooth transition. We cannot guarantee students will get their same schedules or courses of their choice; the earlier the request is made, the better.
Apple & Microsoft Career Panels- IT Computer Science Career Spotlight: Did you know that computing jobs are the fastest-growing, best paying, and largest sector of new jobs in the US? Computer science is making an impact in all subjects, trades, and careers. It's EVERYWHERE! Rolesville High School will be hosting TWO Career Panels with representatives from Apple & Microsoft. Students will hear from experts in the computer science field and participate in programming activities with the professionals! The sessions are open to 11th & 12th grade students. The sessions will be capped at 25 students each.
The Apple Career Panel will be held on 12/7 from 9AM to 10AM and the Microsoft Career Panel will be held from on 12/10 from 1:00PM-2:00PM in the Media Center. To sign up for one or both sessions, please register HERE (using your WCPSS student account).
Wake Forest Dr. Martin Luther King's contest: Each year, Wake Forest hosts a celebration where students are invited to participate in a variety of activities. Awards are given. We would love to have our students participate again this year. Last year, our own Kashara Simpson was a winner. Check out the opportunities at https://www.wakeforestmlkcelebration.com/home.html
Senior Cap and Gown Orders: If you want group pricing (best it will be), you need to order by 12/17 at jostens.com.

Mask Requirements for Indoor Sports re. Spectators: As we transition to winter sports, remember that face coverings are still required indoors on school campuses. The distance between students and adults should be a minimum of 6 feet to the greatest extent possible.
